EXCLUSIVE – Stream The FULL Motion Picture Soundtrack For Tom Hooper’s “Les Misérables”
Even though the movie doesn’t open for a few days still and the soundtrack isn’t dropping until December 29th, we have managed to get our hands on a copy of the FULL Motion Picture Soundtrack for Tom Hooper‘s brilliantly done Les Misérables starring Hugh Jackman, Oscar® winner Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne, Amanda Seyfried, Anne Hathaway, Samantha Barks, Aaron Tveit, Eddie Redmayne, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Helena Bonham Carter.
The film is very different than anything ever made for the big screen. It has transcended the issues that have plagued musicals to the big screen projects for decades and created an intimacy with both the subject and the music that we never realized was lacking and quite frankly after seeing this film, the musical will never be the same again – both in a good and bad way. The result is a soundtrack that might not be what you expect.
With a musical, the songs will translate well onto the recording as the actor’s job is to merely sing the perfect song and let that be the thing that builds the emotion. With Hooper’s film, this soundtrack doesn’t seem as majestic as the previous Broadway, Toronto, London versions. While that might seem a little bit off, it makes a ton more sense after you have seen the film as you get to connect the nuance and the powerhouse acting the film brought with how the music was portrayed. In my opinion, and with all due respect to the musical of which I am a huge fan of, the medium of film allowed a more proper rendition of the songs with power and emphasis on the story.
At any rate, enough blabbing from me.
Behold, the majesty of the Official Motion Picture Soundtrack for Les Misérables. It goes on sale December 29th and I am more than certain that you are going to, like myself, pick up a copy or two after hearing it below.
It’s too bad it’s only 20 tracks because there were plenty of songs in the movie that were great and I would have loved to see on here (I am looking at you Gavroche and your infectious Little People).
Here is the full soundtrack with the songs combined together into one long stream:
